French term or phrase: détachement / calage
This is taken from a patent on the subject of a hypermedia system, specifically from a list of modifiable parameters of system properties. The full phrase is détachement (calage) de la grille dans tous les documents". Is this to do with whether a ruler or something is fixed or floating?
